Planning Division

Commitment to Service

In partnership with developers and property owners of the City, the Planning Division of the City of Kerrville is committed to ensuring the quality of life in Kerrville by working to protect public health and ensure logical development, land use and utility extensions.

Though the primary users of the Division are the property developer and their agents, the Division’s primary function is to protect the public’s interest in the development process. We are not property managers or land agents. It is the developers’ responsibility to understand the ordinances and policies that apply to their development, while it is our responsibility to understand and protect the public intent those policies are based upon.  

Through consistent enforcement of well defined land use, zoning and subdivision standards, and a proactive relationship with the community and property owners, we commit to work to maintain a positive standard for quality development in the City of Kerrville and its ETJ. To that end, we the leaders of this Division commit ourselves and our employees to the following standards of service to all Division users. 

We will:

  •  Inform you of ordinances and regulations applicable to your property;  
  •  Discuss your project, helping you to define your options, throughout its development;
  •  Communicate needs of you project in a unified voice;
  •  Provide a timely and objective review of your project to any board or commission that governs its outcome; and                
  •  Provide a timely method of appeal should it be necessary.
